Amelie had a couple of friends over yesterday afternoon for a playdate...
Years from now, when we're asked by social workers, journalists, chat show hosts, investigative reporters, bounty hunters and high court judges, "When did you first realise that Amelie was different from the other children?", we can show them photos like that.
We can also quote them verbal examples. Halfway through the afternoon, the mother of Child H, on the left, said to him "Come here now or you'll get a smack."
To which Amelie responded, "I'd like a snack!"
That's what happens when you replace corporal punishment with bribery.
